Great Manchester Police Urmston make no secret of their loyalties after tweet trolling Manchester City
Manchester United’s new football kit has proven popular amongst their fans following its release earlier this summer.
The Red Devils ended their long association with Nike to team up with Adidas, and the new kit has resulted in record sales.
Unfortunately, some crooks broke into a Sports Direct store in Greater Manchester and stole a “large amount” of United gear over the weekend.
In an attempt to garner information about the break in, Greater Manchester Police Urmston took to Twitter to appeal for help.
And the person in charge of their Twitter account couldn’t resist a sly dig at United’s derby rivals Manchester City.
Break at Sports Direct Neary Way Large amount of Utd tops stolen, let us know if you get offered one. Unsurprisingly City tops not touched.

However, we suspect City supporters won’t be too bothered after their impressive 3-0 victory over defending Premier League champions Chelsea at Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Goals from Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and Fernandinho sealed an emphatic win for Manuel Pellegrini’s side and left the Citizens top of the table.
